interesting....we will see if it was shot down/unable to maintain controlled flight or if it took fire and damage from that gunfire caused the pilot to land as soon as possible/practicable.
BP has an impossible job. Prayers up.

In a saner time with a saner president, this would be considered an act of war and treated as such.
Well thank god those Republicans fixed this like they promised otherwise a BO heli could have been shot at, hit and had to make an emergency landing.
Damn purists. They almost stopped this great success in holding Barry’s feet to the fire.
Which side shot it down?
Sounds like the Border Patrol needs to invoke the "Baltimore" option...
The most incompetent administration in in our nation's history has sure added many scary concepts to our language...
They need to walk en masse with their supposed union and camp on the Supreme court steps until heard.
Shots came from the Mexican side of the border.
Thanks for the link!
Ping to this story!
no ... we won’t
One of the rounds hit the blade, at least one round went through the cockpit. They were fired on from the Mexican side.
It was a precautionary landing, not a crash or auto.
Very interesting. Thanks for posting. Thanks for the links. BTTT!

Good thing no CBP agents were injured.
